Jacob mentioned that Pidgin/libpurple badly needs a security audit (and
since Empathy's machinery is in libpurple, this would have a direct
benefit for Gnome).  Maybe we could fundraise with that in mind.

Some random ideas:

* What would it take to have a Tor-ified session right from GDM?

* Should we have a desktop-wide "incognito mode"?

* Remember the old document, "Why Johnny can't encrypt"?  How can we
make it really easy to have encrypted mail?

* Should the Gnome Foundation be able to issue certificates?

* Should we have a keyserver?

* Do we have something like HTTPS everywhere?
